Ted Bundy: How true crime creator ‘tried to SAVE serial killer’s life’

In her bestseller “The Stranger Beside Me”, Ms Rule wrote: “I tried, literally, to save his life.

“I began to phone Washington state agencies to try to arrange something that would allow Ted to confess to me, and, through plea bargaining, to be returned to Washington for confinement in a mental hospital.”

Although Ms Rule worked on trying to orchestrate a plea bargain, Bundy never pled guilty to his crimes, instead maintaining his innocence until his execution became inevitable.

Ms Rule was mistaken in her belief that Bundy would confess to her, too.

Ted Bundy BOMBSHELL: How serial killer was only confronted ONCE while ‘hunting women’

He recounted how Bundy “hunted” for women, often in plain sight and in crowded places.

Mr Sullivan said: “If you think about it, the normal person is not geared to suspect that something diabolical is happening around them.

“If you’re an abductor of people, I certainly wouldn’t go to a places like Lake Sammamish, where 40,000 people were.

“I would go somewhere else, that’s what normal people think, Bundy didn’t think that way.”

Ted Bundy SHOCK: How ‘church fought for serial killer’s RELEASE’

Chillingly, just four hours after Ms DaRonch’s successful escape, Bundy would brutally murder another woman, Debbie Kent. 

 Ann Rule, in her seminal 1980 book “The Stranger Beside Me”, spoke about how she had also been fooled by Bundy’s charming exterior.

Incredibly, the ex-policewoman and true crime author was friends with Bundy and worked closely alongside him at the time he began his murderous spree in Seattle, Washington. 

She wrote: “I liked him immediately, it would have been hard not to.

No Filter with Mia Freedman

Unsolved: Kimball Post Office bombing | kare11.com

From the outside, the Post Office in downtown Kimball looks largely unchanged from how it appeared on the morning of May 13th, 1976, the date of the most notorius unsolved crime in the town’s history.

At 6:42 that morning, a package bomb exploded as assistant Postmaster, Ivend Holen, was sorting the mail. He would later die from his injuries.

“Nobody in my dad’s immediate family talks about the incident at all,” said Jennifer Harriel, Holen’s granddaughter. 

Though the United States Postal Inspection Service began investigating immediately, from the outside, the case seems to remain largely unchanged decades later.

“We got our hopes up a lot of times over the years, and we don’t hear anything… from anybody,” Harriel said.

Evidence collection inside the Post Office was tricky. What wasn’t burned in the blast, was soon drenched and scattered by firefighters who worked to put out the flames.

Despite efforts to piece together the bomb, one major

The chilling variety of occasions Ted Bundy was reported to authorities however police did NOT act

In her 1980 book “The Stranger Beside Me”, which is widely considered to be the authoritative work on Bundy, she wrote how she was suspicions about Bundy as far back as 1973.

When Bundy began killing, Ms Rule, an ex-policewoman, quickly began to piece together the evidence.

She wrote: “I kept on trying to find the answer to the awful puzzle, believing that the killer, when he was found, would prove to be a man with a record of violence, a man who should never have been allowed to walk the streets, someone who must surely have shown signs of a deranged mind.”

Police soon discovered Bundy had given his true first name to women he’d attempted to kidnap.
